onto more sensible things, below are some photos of a great little change table we bought for $20. it will be perfect for storing my growing supply of crafting items.... buttons, sequins, threads, ribbons the list goes on. the only problem will be keeping claudia away from it all but i guess i will cross that bridge (daily) when i come to it.
it started out as an off-white table. the other container will become a ribbon storer, mick is working on that project.
we sanded it a little so that the new colour would take to it.
click on this to make it larger and check out that cute smile. mick has the exact same dimple high on his cheek!
we painted it a nice cottage green....
and then sanded it in places where it might ordinarily be worn over time to give it that vintage look. now cast your mind back to my pavlova... remember i told you that mick likes to take over and often the project doesn't end how i had planned in my head? well once again mick started to sand it but tooooooo much. there are parts i like but then there are spots that look too overdone.
overall it looks great and i am really happy with this inexpensive storage solution, beats the plastic container i am currently using!
enjoy your weekend, we will be hosting a tea party for lilis 7th birthday on sunday (her birthday isnt until the 29th but that is the start of school) so i will take heaps of photos for my next post.
take care mmwwaahh rosey
